What Clients Are Saying
"It was all good, from the beautiful venue to the staff! I had never done a cooking class with a group before this, so I was a little nervous about how it would work – turned out great! It was lots of fun, and the food was great. I’d say it was definitely a success!"
Christine Todi
The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation


"Parties That Cook had the best of what I saw both in terms of referrals and online menus. This was a very successful event. We had a lot of fun, the team was great, and the chef was perfect."
Tina Bella
Align Technology, Inc.

"Parties That Cook provided us with a way to make our customers comfortable and to break the ice before our event officially started. It was a great kick-off and a great way to achieve camaraderie right off the bat. [The chefs] and the team were amazing. We were so lucky to have had them running our event. They really went above and beyond! The event planner made me feel completely at ease with the process. She was professional, friendly, and accommodating."
Megan Gates

"The best part is the teambuilding and fun!!!! [The event planner] made the event seem super easy and everything was organized and completed in a timely manner. The party was wonderful!"
